xerox workcentre 470 cx printer configuration


i once had this printer working correctly. It stopped working when I messed with the localhost settings for an unrelated project. i have used the redhat 7.3 printer configuration tool.

After my test pages fails without an error message, i cancel all print jobs. The output looks odd to me because i get both the printtool and lprm messages as follows:
Printer xerox@localhost:
checking perms 'root@localhost+445'
dequeued 'root@localhost+445'
Printer xerox@localhost:
[1] Done printtool
[2]+ Done lprm

HERE IS SOME OTHER HOPEFULLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:

(MY LOCAL HOST FILE IS)
vi /etc/hosts
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost work
10.1.1.3 work

(MY PRINTER CONFIGURATION FILE IS)
vi /etc/printcap
# DO NOT EDIT! MANUAL CHANGES WILL BE LOST!
# This file is autogenerated by printconf-backend during lpd init.
#
# Hand edited changes can be put in /etc/printcap.local, and will be included.

black and white, post script printer / lxm5700m driver

i figured out this problem and the xerox now works as a black and white, post script printer using the lxm5700m driver. when shared from my linux box via samba, my windows 95 box prints fine color pictures.

Steps using the Redhat lprn configuration
1. select /program/system/printer configuration
2. select local printer and type descriptive name
3. select custom device and give path name /dev/lp0
4. select xerox
5. select xm5700m driver (this was the step I was missing).
6. print test page
